has your answers. john, please be kind. >> we have a special one this morning. the brian williams writes, i love "way too early," but bill karins makes me nervous. i associate him with severe weather, counterclockwise flow and wind gusts of 70 miles an hour. i love bill but can't watch right now because i'm preparing for a storm surge of some sort. what happened to the other guy who used to host? >> the other guy, i think, is doing okay. as far as my death, destruction and devastation forecast, i think they'll be back very soon. anchor guy bri, you'll be just fine. no need to be nervous.

of the not the lottery story but seeing the brian williams it was, like, the second story was the lottery story, which i don't know. this is not the same, but it's probably incumbent upon us to at least reference it that they're going to have a baby, might be twins, she was so dehydrated she needed to be hospitalized, they wouldn't have told us because you wait 12 weeks to tell us and supposedly the queen didn't know until yesterday. the guy or girl -- she would be become queen if she were a girl, king he'd be third in line. prince harry gets pushed back. >> do you really care who gets pushed back? who wants it? >> charles wanted it. he's 64 and the queen is 86 and her mother went to well over 100. >> yeah. >> charles is, like, 64 he's, like, you know, this is, you know -- >> never. >> and then next would be i guess william, but prince charles might not get it until he's, you know, he could be 80 years old before he finally gets it. and it -- there's a reason i guess this is kind of interesting. we love watching the royals. has shown me what it meant to be a person of privilege and rank in the old style
this. because if you look back to the last year when we had a balanced budget under president william jefferson clinton, if you look back to that year you will find that at that point in time our revenues reflected 19.6% of our gdp, and our spending reflected 19 points 6% of gdp. where are we today? you get different essence. warren buffett yesterday in "the new york times" said 15.5% of our gdp is coming in of revenue. i've heard lower figures, and the spending side of it is summer in the range of 22-24%. well, that to me is the reality of what has happened. we have seen a decline in tax revenue and an increase in spending for a variety of reasons we could go through. if we're serious about deficit reduction in the years to come we've got to move back towards the golden mean 19 points six. the closer we can get our revenue to 18% of level, as we weigh down spending, the more likely we are to have a stable economy in the years ahead. let's talk about what's happened since that time when we did have our budget in balance. danya in a way updates are figures from time to time. but let's
. the first quote is from a guy namedded william who wrote a book called "the art of political manipulation," a professor of politics i believe, and in the book, he said it is true people win politically because they induced other people to join them; right? that's how we think about politics. you convince and persuade other people to join you, you have a vote, and you win. he says winners reduced by more than attraction and persuasion, but win because they set up the situation in such a way that other people will want to join them or will feel forced by circumstances to join them even without any persuasion at all. this is what political strategy is about. it is about structuring the world so you can win. >> that's the first, the second is from harry reid, and he said in december of 2010 that they, being the republicans, have had a lot of opportunities to offer amendments. the problem is not the offering of amendments, but we'll allow them to offer amendments, but they are not satisfied with that. they want the results. they are not willing to offer an amendment they may lose. they are onl
and felled the mention of it five times in his diaries. the first was on the first day of office by william hurt -- heard, who asked him to raise the debt ceiling. i think he was inaugurated january 20. there were five immediate meetings to raise it. they told him the government would go out of business february 18. several senators flipped and held him a birthday party to celebrate they raised the debt ceiling, but byrd held out and got several military and upgrades in his state. playbook. can you comment on 1981? guest: i think what you are trying to say is they used that ceiling as leverage to force a budget deal. yes, that has been used in the past. raising the debt ceiling is very important. it seems difficult to understand why we're taking on more debt. the reality is you cannot get to lower deficits and reducing the debt unless we have some kind of budget agreement that starts to bring them the deficit long term. you do not want to play with the u.s. economy. not raising the debt ceiling can create all kinds of problems. it could potentially make the u.s. currency no longer the world
